Emergency Care- Dr. Forsthoefel Tells Us His Side

Dr. Eric Forsthoefel is a Tallahassee doctor who has been working in emergency rooms for close to seven years. His compassion to patients and commitment to his work has made him one of the most interesting doctors in the state. 

Dr. Forsthoefel started his college career studying religion at Florida State University. However, he realized that he was more interested in the medical field, as he had been exposed to the medical world his whole life. This prompted him to make the switch to medicine. He graduated with a medical degree from the University of Louisville Medical School and entered into his residency at Louisiana State University. From there he moved on to being an ER doctor. He is trained to assess and treat patients dealing with many different medical concerns, including fractures, trauma, and cardiac distress. 

When asked how he stays so productive, Dr. Forsthoefel responded that being detail-oriented is important. He went on to say that he is able to closely focus on a problem and pay attention to detail. This allows him to be productive and proficient in the emergency room. He credits his ability to pay attention to his patient’s details while working in a very fast-paced and chaotic setting as one of his best characteristics. Doing what he loves is also a major part of why he is such a good doctor, as he thoroughly enjoys taking care of the people who come through the emergency room. He believes that organization is a crucial part of the environment he works in and that achieving success is something that doesn’t happen alone. He went on to say that working with his colleagues allows them to come up with ways to improve the workplace together. 

Dr. Forsthoefel is truly dedicated to his work in the emergency room. When he isn’t caring for patients, he enjoys learning how to barbeque at home. He also recommends a book about medicine to those who ask, called “The House of God.” This book, written by Samuel Shem, is a satirical novel that follows a small group of medical interns at a fictional hospital.
